Hope everyone is doing great. So here I am back with another DIY post. This post is about homemade face packs to treat uneven or patchy skin tone. All woman desires for long lustrous hair and flawless radiant complexion. But often we notice few patches on our skin or sun spots, skin redness etc. Our skin tone becomes patchy or uneven. Skin darkening is very embarrassing.
We do not feel beautiful. And it makes us look unhealthy and tired. It also gets difficult to apply make up on our skin if the complexion is uneven. Various factors like busy lifestyle, pollution, unhealthy habits, ageing, hormonal changes, long exposure to sun and stress lead to skin darkening. While extreme cases need to be taken care by medication and cosmetic treatment, moderate skin darkening can be cured by few home remedies.
Here I am going to share four homemade face packs that will help you to get back your even skin tone.

Take 3 tbsp of gram flour in a small bowl and add 1 tsp of baking soda in it. Now mix these two by adding enough milk and make it a paste. Apply on your face and wait till it becomes dry.

When we first come to notice our patchy or uneven skin tone, we immediately start spending heavily on different cosmetics because, uneven skin tone makes us look unattractive. In pursuit to get back our radiant and even complexion, we empty our pockets in buying skin whitening creams, other cosmetics and visiting parlors for various skin treatments. Often these products contain bleach, which, in the long run, does more harm to our skin than any good.
These above mentioned face packs are very easy to make and trust me, they actually work. I personally had faced this skin darkening issue couple of years ago and I had tried the Neem Tulsi face pack for like 2 months and it worked wonders for my skin.
My patchiness had gone and my skin became fairer and smoother. So girls, if you ever face the issue of skin darkening, go for these packs and you will surely be benefitted.
